Lemon Maple Salmon

Dana Zakowitz


I love using lemon juice, I always add extra in every recipe because I just like it. So I also add a little bit of lemon juice to the salmon after I pour the sauce over it right before I wrap it up in the tin foil. But it's not necessary :)

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all ingredients (except salmon) and mix thoroughly.

  3. Bake for 35-45 minutes or until salmon is flaky.
  4. When done, pour the juices left in the foil over the top of the salmon and serve.
